Depending on ur price range the best low end im talkin under 300 dllar range is getting some performance software from probably turner at turnermotorsports.com and a cold air intake , also an exhaust it may sound cool but for 600 bucks not the best money conscious mod

A chip and intake were up there, exhaust is kinda pricy and a big job.. Maybe i'll put that aside for a rainy day.

Looking around on E-Bay I can do all that for under $100, do you think the price of the cold air intake matters, and do you have any suggestions for which chip to get (and how to install it)?

I heard about that, two questions though; 1) What exactly is it? and 2) How would I go about doing it?

I can't believe some of you people and your so called "debaffling"...you make me vomit, you own a BMW so get a decent CAI. I don't care what anyone says, debaffling will do absolutley nothing for you. You're lucky to get 4 or 5 to the wheels with a decent CAI AND software/chip to support it.

debaffling does not give any power gains but makes your car sound better.
